Bar Bending Works

Bar bending schedule provides the reinforcement calculation for reinforced concrete beam. It provides details of reinforcement cutting length, type of bends and bend length.

We will take one example for reinforcement quantity calculations for a concrete beam.
Example of RCC Beam Reinforcement Calculation:

Consider a beam of clear length of 4m, 300mm wide by 450mm depth. It consists of 2-12 diameter bars at top, and 2-16 diameter and 1 – 12 diameter bars at the bottom. Diameter of stirrup is 8mm spaced at 180mm center to center. Clear cover to reinforcement provided is 40mm.
